OH sweet mercy this tea smells deleesh (as a friend’s husband would say)! You can smell the cookie in your cup. I have never enjoyed biscotti, not once. I’ve tried. They look so good and have such wonderful sounding names but I prefer my cookies MUCH softer (I know you’re supposed to dunk it in your coffee but I don’t drink coffee and would rather just have a chocolate chip cookie from my Aunt Sue).

Anyway, this tea does not have an overpowering smell at all, which is a little disappointing. I cannot smell it wafting from the cup unless I have the cup ready to take a sip. Speaking of sip – four minutes may be a scootch too long to steep on first tast. However, upon second sip, it’s just wonderful. I’ve added nothing yet but will try a bit of sugar and milk next time around. It really is a delightful tea, probably for all day but it certainly makes me happy as the first cuppa the day when my brain is not yet fully functioning. ahhhhhh, deleesh!

UPDATE: alright with a spoon of sugar, better with spoon of sugar AND milk, but still stands alone in a mighty fine way

Boiling 4 min, 15 sec

I started drinking tea when I first went to Japan in ‘95. It’s been a delightful addiction ever since. I love sitting around a pot of tea reading a book or catching up with friends.

After living in East Africa the past two years working in community development, fair trade is incredibly important to me and I’m always looking for stellar fair trade teas and products.
